It's been a while
The reviews are carried out in the same pattern as today, focusing on performance and how impressive the graphics are. Unfortunately these features haven't aged that well It's still a bit of fun seeing those old games in action. More interesting is the review of Leather Goddesses of Phobos for the Mac, showing the various "feelies" included in the game box.
